Golf Swing Follow Through for Beginners – Finish Your Swing in Style
So far the covered parts in the golf swing for beginners series are the stance, the backswing, and the downswing. The final part is the golf swing follow through for beginners which does not just help you finish in style, but also tells a lot about your whole golf swing execution. The more your pose at the end of your follow through resembles one of the pro golfers on tour, the better the chance your swing was good.
It does not have to look exactly the same, but close enough is preferred. If the backswing and downswing are well executed, it naturally translates into a good execution of the follow through. As soon as something is off and out of position, it reflects in the follow through.
Here is the breakdown of the moving parts in the follow through:
- Arms Movement – tells how the contact was, tells us the ball trajectory, tells the intensity of the swing.
- Wrists Movement – helps to release the club on time.
- Legs Movement – helps to complete the turn.
- Upper Body Movement – it helps to complete the turn and helps with stability through the swing.
- Hips Movement – helps to transfer the energy to the lead side, and helps to complete the turn.
- Shoulders Movement – helps the arms and the club to complete the turn in a circle.
- Head Movement – helps to complete the turn.
- Club Movement – shows how the contact was, tells the ball trajectory, tells the intensity of the swing.
